My father, Garfield Freih, is an avid fisherman and frequently acts as the chef on fishing trips he takes with his buddies. To please that group - and to get us kids to eat fish at home - he created this pleasantly mild crispy coating. -Tammi Freih, Lakewood, California

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup crisp rice cereal, crushed
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 4 walleye or other whitefish fillets (1-3/4 to 2 pounds)
  • Oil for frying

Directions

  1. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the egg and milk. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the cereal, flour, cornmeal and seasonings. Dip the fish fillets into egg mixture, then coat with cereal mixture.
